2019 KPX Class Updates & Information

December 03, 2018

We hope you all are enjoying the off season. We want to prepare our racers throughout the region as much as possible, many aspects of our sport are slightly changing.

As you all know KPX was one of the first to support and build 206 racing in the Western United States. We are going to continue our unwavering support of the 206 motor package with or without Briggs & Strattons Racings support as we feel these classes play a huge factor into the growth and strength of Karting. Many are aware of the fact that Briggs & Stratton Racing has implemented a new 2019 rulebook with some slight changes.  After much deliberation KPX and the surrounding region will be following the new 2019 rules as they are written. We understand this may frustrate some. This will help continue the opportunity for racers to run all surrounding regions without rule discrepency.

KPX 206 Classes:

-Junior 1 206

-Junior 2 206

-Senior 206

-Masters 206

lo206-2

In 2018 we added the popular KA100 to our series and the IKF Grand Nationals race. This motor package has tremendous growth and gave racers an opportunity to run a 2-cycle package within our series. We will continue to build on these classes as they continue to gain popularity in the Karting world.

KPX KA100 Classes:

-Junior KA100

-Senior KA100

-Masters KA100

-SuperMasters KA100

KPX will be working with our region and surrounding regions on details pertaining to each class. Most class weights, age, and details will be staying the same.

It has been proven that the class platforms KPX has utilized including the 206 and the KA100 have been very successful. We are working with this and other regions to become united as one. The new IKF regions is just one step in this unified direction.

This is a very exciting time for the sport of Karting!

2018 IKF Grand Nationals Movie

 

The long anticipated 2018 IKF Grand Nationals Movie. Over 150 racers from across the Western United States all came together to make this race a huge success. This was all possible due to everyone involved including IKF, KPX, CCKRA, SKUSA, Evinco, Cambrian Go-Karts, RLV, Unleashed Power, Fastech Racing, Odenthal Racing Products, German Autowerks, T&H Refrigeration, IAME West, Briggs & Stratton Racing, the shops/teams, the workers, and so many more. We were blessed with the honor to host such a prestigious race.

Thank you to Teddie Blake for a wonderful production!

We hope you enjoy!

NORTHERN CALIFORNIA’S KPX KARTING CHAMPIONSHIP RECOGNIZED AS THE FIRST NEW OFFICIAL IKF REGION IN NORTH AMERICA

northern_california

01 DECEMBER 2018 – The International Karting Federation (IKF) today confirmed
that beginning in 2019, the KPX Karting Championship will be officially designated as the
IKF’s Northern California region. The move comes in recognition of a tremendous
track record of KPX promoting and conducting successful karting racing events in
the area, and their unbridled passion and commitment for the sport.

“Really, if I could custom tailor the perfect regional candidate — KPX would be it,”
exclaimed IKF’s Tom Kutscher. “There are arguably no group of guys more
committed to growing karting in California than KPX. Kenny and Chris are true
ambassadors of the sport and their passion shows in everything they do.”

As part of IKF, KPX Karting Championship will not only be sanctioned and backed by
the IKF, but will also work with other IKF regions in the country to help promote
bigger and more successful collaborative events for everyone.

As part of the revitalization process of the IKF, the organization will be appointing
new regions throughout the country, beginning with Northern California. It’s the
genesis of big things to come from the longtime sanctioning body, after years of
uncertainty and turmoil.

“IKF, without proper leadership, are just three more letters on an entry form,” explained KPX’s candid Kenny Manchester. “Sure, there’s history. But it’s the future
of the organization that offers any value for today’s racer. As part of our affiliation,
we’re working hard to come up with new ways to bring more value to our local
customers. One idea being considered are super races, where other IKF regions
come to our neck of the woods, and vice versa, for a seasonal shootout.”

While details of any joint event are still being finalized, what’s confirmed today is
the mutual enthusiasm between IKF and KPX in launching their joint initiative.

“KPX took on the 2018 IKF GrandNationals on very short notice,” elaborated IKF’s
Tom Kutscher. “By anyone’s scorecard, they knocked it out of the park. What they
did …with what little time they had— it was a true success. I’m excited to see what
the future holds and to see what they can do with some real lead time.”


The International Kart Federation was the first kart racing organization in the
United States, founded and still based in California in 1957. In 1971 it was joined by
the World Karting Association, which originally focused more on the Eastern and
Central United States.

The International Kart Federation (IKF) takes pride in its long record of
achievement as a governing body for the sport of kart racing. In recognition of the
need for controls over the sport, the International Kart Federation has published
rules for competition since November 21, 1957. Throughout this time, the objectives
of the Federation have been the same: to foster strong and fair competition; to
provide reasonable rules for the various types of competition; to administer the
competition program with impartiality, and to reduce the hazards associated with
this sport.

KPX is proud to announce that Sierra Pacific Lithographics is supporting and partnering with us for the 2017 race season. The Milton family plays a big part throughout the whole karting community. They are always looking for ways to help where needed, whether it is on or off the track. If you need printing, marketing, or just racing advice this is the family to reach out to.

We met the Milton’s last year as Blake was working to master the 4-stroke stuff and has become one of the elite drivers in the series. Before going into the 2017 season we had many talks with Shannon Milton on ways the racers could benefit from our partnership. After finding out more information on their wide range of services it was a no brainer for us that Sierra Pacific Lithographics and KPX would make for a great partnership. In reality, we found ourselves needing their services just days later, as we had them design and print the banners for the Super Regional race up in Redding, CA. Sierra Pacific Lithographics not only is giving back to the racers but is also providing a quality product and service that is available to all of our racing family.

Please use Sierra Pacific Lithographics for all of you graphic, print, and marketing needs, as we were very pleased with the services they provided us. They were friendly and very timely with our project. Tell them KPX sent you.
